December 6, 2006

JOHNSON CITY - Looking for a way to bring a smile to local children who will be spending the holiday season in the hospital?

The Gold Humanism Honor Society at East Tennessee State University's James H. Quillen College of Medicine is organizing a book drive that will run through Dec. 14 and is accepting donations of new books that are appropriate for youngsters ranging from toddlers to older children. Later this month, the medical students will deliver the books to The Children's Hospital at Johnson City Medical Center and will host a holiday party for the pediatric patients.

The Gold Humanism Honor Society is a prestigious organization founded by The Arnold P. Gold Foundation to recognize medical students, residents, and faculty who have demonstrated excellence in clinical care, leadership, compassion, and dedication to service.

A drop box is located on each floor of Stanton-Gerber Hall (Building 178) on the VA Medical Center campus. For more information, contact Julie Robinette in the College of Medicine Office of Student Affairs via robinett@etsu.edu or at 423-439-2037.
